In order to be considered for a position at public health schools, candidates must have completed a bachelor’s degree in a related field, a bachelor of science in public health, a master’s degree or higher in public education, or an advanced degree in public service.
The list of required credentials can be found on the Cleveland Public Library website.
Applicants who do not meet the qualifications for the position will not be considered, according to the Cleveland Board of Education.
The agency has not announced any changes to the process, and public health education departments in cities across the country have been able to apply for positions for the past decade.
In recent years, Cleveland Public Schools has seen an increase in the number of applications, with more than 8,500 applications filed in 2016 alone.
In 2015, there were about 1,000 applications.
In 2016, the Cleveland school district awarded four scholarships totaling $10,000 to students who applied, with a total of $10.5 million raised.
The first round of awards was announced in April, and a second round is set to be awarded in May.
The Cleveland Board has previously awarded $10 million scholarships for students with special needs to public schools.
Last year, the board also announced it would be providing $1.5 billion in funding for the school system, including $5.5 of that amount to expand and expand charter schools, including those in Cleveland Public School District and Public Health Jobs, in 2018.
